The Constant Area Model, Day 2 of 3

Unit 1: Modeling with Algebra
Lesson 11 of 15

Objective: SWBAT interpret the symmetry of a rational function in terms of the two dimensions of a rectangle. SWBAT create an equation to model the relationship between perimeter and length by combining two other equations.

Big Idea: Symmetric points on a graph reveal a deeper connection between the length, width, and perimeter of a tiger's pen that can be modeled with a new equation.
